We’re testing out how quickly a change in e-book price travels through cyberspace.
So for a limited time, my short story “Parallels” will be available for free. It’s just been flipped to free over at Smashwords, but I don’t know how long it will take to change at the iBookstore and other e-stores. Days? A week? Two weeks? A month? Part of the reason we’re doing this test is to find out.
But the story won’t stay free forever, at some point in November we’ll be flipping it back to $0.99 and then watching how long it takes to go back to the original price at the e-bookstores. If I learn anything worth sharing, I’ll do so.
NOTE: This experiment got cut short, for the reason listed here. We’ll be doing this with a different short story instead.
